I wrote this song about the same time as the previous two: just broke up with the love of my life and in not such a good mood. Although the song ends with: “I can’t imagine I will love again, but I will love again, and you will love again”.
Some of you might recognize the song as ‘Love Again’, the b-side for the new OSL-single. We recorded it in a slightly more rock version for our album, but it didn’t fit so well with the rest of the songs. Jochem came up with the new title, which is better, but ‘Change’ is the original one.
One of the very few songs I made without any drums or beats, just some percussion. It was the first song I wrote when I moved out of my parent’s house so it reminds me of the tiny, dark room I used to live in. The title of the ep is from the same period: when I didn’t really feel like cooking, the microwave days.
Suddenly I realized
it's never gonna be alright and I,
I'm feeling so alone that I could die.
I want to write you, I want to call
but that's not gonna help at all, and so
I'll be staring ghosts into the wall.
I wish that I could say
how I miss you every day,
but it's foolish to prefer the easy way.
And I know that you will say
that you really want to change,
but I guess it's not enough to make me stay.
Sometimes when I come home from work,
I hope you're waiting at my door and say:
all of this was just the start of more.
I'm afraid that no one could
ever love me like you would, 'cause I'm
easily and often misunderstood.
I'll leave your picture hanging on my wall.
I won't forget you but I should let go
and try to set you free.
I can't imagine I will love again,
but I will love again.
You will love again.
And I wish that I could say
that I'm better off this way,
but I miss you more with every single day.
